Indian Premier League - 11th match

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab won by 7 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

1.1

Pathan to Uthappa, OUT, he chases a really wide delivery and Pathan gets away with a loosener, so full and wide outside off and Uthappa succumbs to temptation, the ball catches the top edge of the bat and heads to Yuvraj who cups it at first slip

RV Uthappa c Yuvraj Singh b Pathan 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 6/1   JD Ryder 6* (6b 1x4)   IK Pathan 0.1-0-0-1

5.2

Abdulla to Ryder, OUT, that's a huge sigh of relief for Punjab! Ryder fails to pick the slower offcutter and swings across the line and misses it completely, the stumps are erect but the bails fly in different directions

JD Ryder b Abdulla 32 (21b 6x4 0x6) SR: 152.38

Royal Challengers Bangalore 48/2   JH Kallis 15* (10b 1x4 1x6)   YA Abdulla 1.2-0-8-1

5.4

Abdulla to Pietersen, OUT, that's a very tame dismissal and Abdulla is the toast of Kingsmead! Pietersen hangs his bat out at a delivery moving away from him and decides to check his shot, Goel takes an easy catch at short cover Pietersen could have left that ball instead of reaching out to that slower ball

KP Pietersen c Goel b Abdulla 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 48/3   JH Kallis 15* (10b 1x4 1x6)   YA Abdulla 1.4-0-8-2

10.3

Chawla to Dravid, OUT, trouble for Bangalore as Dravid departs! He chips down the track to go downtown but fails to get to the pitch of the ball, the ball swirls in the air for a while and VRV Singh sprints from long-on to his left and takes it comfortably, Chawla deserves credit for cutting back on the pace and giving it more flight

R Dravid c Singh b Chawla 10 (13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

Royal Challengers Bangalore 73/4   JH Kallis 30* (26b 3x4 1x6)   PP Chawla 2.3-0-9-1

16.3

Abdulla to Kallis, OUT, bowls the short ball and takes a lot of pace off it, that traps Kallis who goes for the pull but doesn't get the timing or the distance to clear the rope, Jayawardene takes it at deep square-leg

JH Kallis c Jayawardene b Abdulla 62 (46b 5x4 2x6) SR: 134.78

Royal Challengers Bangalore 134/5   LRPL Taylor 24* (16b 3x4 1x6)   YA Abdulla 2.3-0-12-3

17.4

Singh to Kohli, OUT, hits the deck hard on a good length and Kohli tries to smack him over the on side but mistimes the shot and Bopara takes a sitter at short midwicket

V Kohli c Bopara b Singh 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Royal Challengers Bangalore 142/6   LRPL Taylor 29* (20b 4x4 1x6)   VRV Singh 1.4-0-19-1

18.4

Abdulla to Taylor, OUT, gets across his stumps to a pitched up delivery and flicks it, he gets a lot of elevation and Jayawardene takes it easily at deep square leg

LRPL Taylor c Jayawardene b Abdulla 35 (22b 4x4 2x6) SR: 159.09

Royal Challengers Bangalore 159/7   P Kumar 10* (4b 1x6)   YA Abdulla 3.4-0-28-4

19.1

Pathan to Kumar, OUT, Praveen takes the risk of blocking all three stumps and that made him a candidate for an lbw, Pathan bowls from over the wicket and slants it towards the leg stump, Praveen moves to the off stump and exposes the leg stump

P Kumar lbw b Pathan 13 (7b 0x4 1x6) SR: 185.71

Royal Challengers Bangalore 162/8   R Vinay Kumar 0* (0b)   IK Pathan 3.1-0-29-2

19.2

Pathan to Pankaj Singh, OUT, the legstump goes for an evening walk! He delivers a slanting yorker from over the wicket and Pankaj swings and misses and his leg stump takes a tumble

Pankaj Singh b Pathan 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Royal Challengers Bangalore 162/9   R Vinay Kumar 0* (0b)   IK Pathan 3.2-0-29-3
